This segment of The Law and You features personal injury trial lawyer Lara Johnson discussing new requirements for concussion training for coaches.
Concussions and brain injuries have been a hot topic in professional and college sports lately with the majority of attention focused on the dangers suffered by the men who play football. According to NCAA data, women’s sports account for five of the 10 college sports with the very highest concussion rates.
The Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) recent report, Traumatic Brain Injury Epidemiology and Rehabilitation, addresses the prevalence of TBI, outcomes of TBI, and effectiveness of current methods for rehabilitation.
After January 1, 2014, Jenna’s Law (Oregon Senate Bill 721) required sports leagues or non-school athletic teams to educate children over 12 and adults who are involved in their teams in recognizing and handling concussions.
After a serious impact and possible concussion, student athletes are sometimes urged to get back into the game without proper evaluation. But research that shows how serious concussions of all levels can be, combined with improved laws, is eliminating that practice. In conjunction with the National Center for Sports Safety (NCSS), we have sponsored training for coaches to help them identify concussions and respond safely. To learn more about the symptoms and prevention of sports-related brain injuries, please read through the Centers for Disease Control’s Athlete Fact Sheet, Parent’s Fact Sheet, and our Sports Injury Prevention Playbook.
